We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I'm new here to processing and to programming in general. I've tried to get into coding but I never had a goal to work to. Now I finally found something I want to build: a program that converts a image that you can draw yourself into a binary code.
I've made a simple start; a drawing program with erasing tool that draws a black line on white. but I'm running into 2 problems
1: zooming in, I want to convert a 16x16 image to binary but making a screen of that size is just way too small. I need to find a way to make it bigger without changing resolution.
2: The actual conversion a black pixel needs to become a 1 and a white (background) needs to become a 0. example of a 3x3 output: (every code is a horizontal row)

a friend of mine told me it's handy to use a bit shifter for this, but I just don't know how!
Any help would be appreciated.
